An Islamic Jihad-affiliated television station urging Palestinians to carry out terrorist attacks has been taken off the air, Israel’s Shin Bet security agency said Friday.

The order to shut down Ramallah-based Falastin al-Yom, which maintains a television station as well as Facebook and Twitter accounts, followed an Israeli diplomatic-security cabinet decision to enforce counter terrorism measures against Palestinian media outlets that incite violence.

The TV station’s offices were raided by the Israel Defense Forces and the Shin Bet on Friday. The troops confiscated its equipment, and its manager, Faruk Aliat, 34, was arrested and taken in for questioning. Aliat is a known member of the Gaza-based Islamic Jihad terror group.

Falastin al-Yom, the Shin Bet said, “urged Palestinian to carry out of terrorist attacks against the State of Israel and its citizens. Its messages of incitement were broadcast through the television channel and the Internet.”

An IDF official said that taking the channel off the air “illustrated the considerable efforts the military invests in disrupting and thwarting Palestinian incitement, which fuels terrorism across Judea and Samaria and in Israel.”
